Paper Title:
Investigation and Application of Excellent Performance Mg Rare Earth Alloys as a Structural Material
  Abstract

Magnesium (Mg) alloys are becoming one of the key engineering materials for aerospace and automotive industries because of their low density, high specific strength, excellent machinability and good diecastability, etc. In the meantime, conventional Mg alloys are limited for their low strength and creep resistance. Therefore, special attention is given on its applications at high temperature such as the transmission case and the engine block, In the near decades, much effort have been devoted to improving the properties such as strength, ductility, creep resistance of Mg alloys by adding rare earth (RE) elements, and it has been certified that the addition of RE do improve the performances of the Mg alloys. In this paper, we will review the progresses in the investigations of the Mg-RE alloys as a structural material, and also propose its application prospect in future.
